It may have been a few weeks since the Royal Wedding, but everyone is still in awe of Megan Markle’s instantly iconic wedding style. For the ceremony the Duchess of Sussex wore a beautiful wedding dress designed by Clare Waight Keller, the first female Artistic Director at the historic French fashion house Givency and for the wedding reception, she wore a sleek and sleeveless Stella McCartney gown.
Both dresses exuded grace and style and have set off an already growing trend exponentially amongst modern brides; to have two separate wedding dresses primed and ready to go. Ellis Bridals are firmly behind this trend as it allows brides to pick two different Ellis Bridals wedding dress styles to smoothly transition from day to night, to have their first dance as man and wife more comfortably. It can even suit the change in tone entirely from daytime solemn church wedding to sophisticated evening cocktail reception. Ellis Bridals’ wedding dress stylists have thoroughly researched the Ellis Bridals 2018 Collection and have put together some looks to help the fashionable modern bride find her two perfect Ellis Bridals gowns.
